exists as an element in the cultural life of every society. (levin the environment can influence music both conscious and unconscious ways. for instance in the west, the argument has been made that a lot of the dissonant music that arose at the beginning of the century was a result or a reaction to the noisiness of industrialization, and the dissonance of modern civilization-- that it was a reflection of social dissonance, in a way, in sound. [dissonant orchestra music] (slobin) if we use the word environment to relate to music, we're talking about two things: a physical environment and a social environment. in the case of highlander people in bosnia singing together, the two are pretty much inseparable. (narrator) in a mountainous region of bosnia herzegovina close to sarajevo, a sheep herding community has developed a unique singing style known as ganga. this genre, which is primarily sung outdoors in groups, closely reflects the conditions and life style of the highlander commity. in bosnian highlander culture, specifically in mt. bjelasnica, people will spend a lot of time outdoor

, if you follow the metaphor that bullying is a systemic virus, then the environment has to change so the virus cannot grow and the only way the environment changes is if youth and adults begin to speak with one voice about changing the social norms that allows it to happen. it makes sense to most of us, you have it khaifrpb the social norms. we must educate. but we must go beyond thinking more rigor will get us better achievement. we have to remember a school is a community and in a xhuept, people look out for each other. they've got each other's back. how do we begin to promote that idea that we are in this thing together? we believe it's through, unfortunately but truly, self-interest. kids are driven developmentally by the desire to fit in, to belong, to be part of an affinity group. if we can capitalize on their desire to look out for their friends and give them some more tools and opportunities and support, they will begin to do what we need them to do to at least confront it in their own small cell of social influence and the compounding and leveraging of that begins to mak

of the russian oil industry. i was just wondering if you could talk a little bit about the environment and environmental issues. here in this country whenever we talk about new exploration, we're also talking about environmental implications, and we hear about disasters here. we don't really hear much about them in russia, though i'm sure they exist and can be quite massive. so i wonder if you could just talk about that a bit. >> well, here we come to the guilty part of the guilty love. because i'm as conscious as everyone else that we are, in a sense, too clever for our own good. by the way, one of the unfortunate consequences of this bonanza that we are, that we have just, that we are now harvesting is that we are headed in all likelihood for an era of quite possibly cheaper hydrocarbons and certainly very abundant hydrocarbons. that thing which is so easy to us, which is to climb into our car and drive around to the nearest gas station is something that's going to get easier and easier and easier. for the next generation. and this is very bad news for the environment, there's no que

that don't need external links and, like us, can sense their environment. what you see on this robot are these two chips here which are essentially rate gyroscopes. these play the same role as the semicircular canals in the human body located near the ears, which essentially tell us orientation. so the rate gyroscopes that are on board can actually measure these angular velocities at thousands of times a second. this chip here is the accelerometer and this allows the robot to sense accelerations in the lateral direction so these are analogs to the otolith organs that measure acceleration in the human head. narrator: when a human pilot feels an unexpected change in acceleration, he knows to adjust the aircraft. kumar: the robots do exactly the same thing. narrator: the sensors adjust the craft by changing the relative velocities of the rotors and allow the drones to follow a leader with precision. kumar: a fundamental problem in coordinating multiple robots is the ability to maintain formations. what a robot has to do is determine where its neighbors are and figur

transportation system. we want people to get around in a way that steps lightly on the environment. we want people to get around in ways that are enjoyable. and that really contribute to what makes san francisco special, such as our wonderful cable cars. but above all, we want to make sure that people can get around the city safely. it's no good to have a great transportation system if people can't get around safely. people need to not only be able to be safe, but to be able to feel safe, and nowhere is that more important than when you're on foot because that is when you're arguably the most vulnerable. it's also how every trip starts and ends. and many trips in san francisco, and we want more of them in between, to be on foot as well because it's a nicer way to enjoy the city. but if we want people to be out and walking, we need them to be safe. we want them to feel safe, and that's what we're here to talk about today. and none of that will happen without great leadership. so, without further ado, happy to bring up our great leader, the mayor of the city and county, ed lee.
